What should I prepare before upgrading the CPU?

I was planning to upgrade my i5-3320m on my 8470p to i7-3740qm, and want to be familiarized with some procedures needed to perform before changing the current CPU.
After doing some searching, I know I need to delete "ssdt.aml" file in CLOVER/patched/ first and generate a new one after the upgrade. That is it? Anything else I need to take care of?

Thank you!

Assuming you're using the hotpatch guide...

... that would be it.

Note: You could also set config.plist/KernelAndKextPatches/KernelXCPM=true (details in the guide).
